Dear ESL All subscribers from all around the world,

Have you ever heard of ESL (English as a Second Language), EFL(English as a Foreign language) or Business English blogs? Do you clearly understand what the terms "blog" or "weblog" refer to? A weblog, which is usually shortened to blog, is a type of website where entries are made (such as in a journal or diary) and displayed in a reverse chronological order. As blogs usually deal with a specific topic, the ten blogs, which we have selected for you this month provide commentary, news and information on English learning and teaching.

A typical blog contains mostly text, but can also contain images, and links to other resources and blogs, web pages, and other media related to the topic under discussion. There is therefore a lot more to explore at blogsites than what first meets the eye, which is usually the last dated textual entry showing at the top of the homepage.

This month's issue features blogsites that cover a wide range of topics dealing with general and business English, topics that can be useful to both English learners and teachers. For those who would like to push the exploration a little further, our last suggested link provides a collection of close to one hundred other English learning blogsites available for free on the web .

Do not hesitate to send us your comments or questions if you have any.

Happy blogging!
